damn I’m excited! , I’ve never played it before

Avoid all spoilers then like your life depends on it because if you don’t know what’s going on then the game is gonna blow you away. I’d seriously avoid all the comment sections to do with this game if I were you.

I feel like the twist is so well known that its kinda awkward now lol.

Is it a prequel to star wars? Or does it retell the story? I never got into star wars

Like others have said the story is one of the best ever. You're in for a treat.

I almos cried. Cannot wait

I leapt from my couch and ran around the house screaming, my wife just stared at me in confusion. It was great!

The fact that it’s a full, from-the-ground-up remake has me incredibly excited. KOTOR was amazing for its time, but it’s really dated now, and not just graphically. A full modernization sounds incredible.

ID: hc8nrwd

yeah as much i love Kotor i have to admit it's basically unplayable without heavy modding.

heres hoping kotor2 is also remade

ID: hc8taug

Agreed on both counts. I tried going back and playing KOTOR a couple years ago, and I couldn’t do it. It just has not aged well. I also really hope that if the KOTOR Remake is successful, then KOTOR 2 gets a green light.

5 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:08 ID: hc8a1y9

It's a great game but what I really want is a remake of the horribly butchered KotOR 2. With all the missing content restored. The game was really great but also rushed and what got released was obviously incomplete.

ID: hc8dy2h

If this does well I’m sure they’ll tackle KOTOR 2 too.

ID: hc8gfm4

That's what I'm thinking too. And if both do well, why not make a brand new KOTOR 3?

ID: hc8sark

Earlier this year it was rumored Aspyr was working on a KOTOR remake that blended the stories of 1 and 2. Seeing as how this remake was just announced, happens to be made by aspyr, I’d say the rest of the rumor is true too. So it’s actually 1 and 2 we’ll get in one huge package.

So, basically like Dearhloop: PS5 and PC Day 1, Xbox later

Good enough

ID: hc8hajp

Thank you, I was about to sell my XSX lol

ID: hc8howj

ps5 and pc only. no xbox

ID: hc8nxip

It's only exclusive at launch, it will come to Xbox later much like Deathloop

So sounds like a timed exclusive. Either way a nice get for Sony

ID: hc8czya

I'll never understand cheering for 'bought' exclusivity.

ID: hc8kt6g

This one doesn't seem 'bought' however. Sony seems to be publishing this one which means it might not have been made without their cash flow. In the original article they write as if they reached out to LucasGames first

ID: hc8pr5b

Not everyone can afford every console and a good pc. So people cheer for the games their console get. Pretty simple.

ID: hc84odh

I wish all exclusives would be timed though, I want to play halo, gears of war and starfield on ps5 too

ID: hc8cyfg

1st party games should not expected to be timed exclusives.

3rd party 'bought' exclusives are usually always bullshit, though. It's just a check that a platform owner writes to stop another platform from being able to play a game they otherwise would have gotten.

ID: hc8hlam

ps5 and pc only

I blew my load when this was shown… loved this game so much (better than most of the movies!)

10 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:00 ID: hc88wa1

Dont know much about these developers. Wonder what kind of game it looks like, seems so far away still

11 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:01 ID: hc88z7x

Did it show an estimated release date? I’m at work and can’t watch.

ID: hc8afpo

No, no estimated release date or window. In the after show interviews, they interviewed a developer from Aspyr and I believe he mentioned that it is still a ways away. I'd guess a potential release date sometime in 2023/2024 at the earliest.

ID: hc8edgo

Oof. I was hoping they’d been keeping it under wraps for a while and it’d be end of next year. Especially since it’s a remake, but that’s fine. Just happy to get one eventually

12 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:50 ID: hc8g3c4

this is the biggest announcement for me from this show(among other great announcements imo). i’ve been wanting to play this game for so long since i missed out when it first came out and was well past that console generation when i took notice of it.

it’s great news after being a lil bummed about starfield and eso6

Love the Xbox people now deciding that exclusives are bad again as if they didn’t just celebrate Microsoft buying Bethesda. It makes total sense— whenever something cool comes out that we get, it’s a criminal business tactic. But when it benefits them? No problems. Clowns.

ID: hc8istt

If I remember correctly when xbox bought zenimax it was mostly outrage and xbox users pointing out that Playstation does it a lot. They're both the same. Don't claim it's a whole community. Tribalism is a funny thing

ID: hc8m01x

When did Sony buy a massive game publisher?

ID: hc8gptq

Which Xbox people? Show us!

14 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:35 ID: hc8dyj9

That's a sketchy choice of a developer, honestly. I really want to be excited about this and I mean no disrespect to the developers themselves, but this is a massively beloved, large scale RPG and the studio hasn't really tackled anything on this level before.

Fingers crossed though and I wish them the best. Expectations will be hard to match.

Internet outrage over timed exclusivity in 3, 2, 1…

ID: hc8d4jn

More people should get upset about this shit, no matter who does it.

But there's SO MANY fanboys who are ok with it when it's 'their' platform that isn't affected.

ID: hc8ezom

Doesn't seem too hysterical so far. It does take the edge off that they announced it so far in advance, and with the initial reveal - like, if timed exclusivity has to be a thing, this seems like the least painful way to do it.

There are a weird number of people shouting at Jeff Grubb that Xbox has to make Indiana Jones exclusive now though, which is kinda wild - not that it's inconceivable, but there's just no logical link there.

The fact they started the conference with this is insane. Easily elevated the entire showcase for me

They’re cool with it until the shoe is on the other foot basically. They don’t really care that FF7 Remake is still not on other platforms even though I can play the original on my Series X.

Same will happen with this game which is dumb to me as I own KOTOR 1 on my Xbox. Hoping this one will actually make it to Xbox unlike FF7R.

25 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:47 ID: hc86uj9

I don’t think Xbox fans should complain since they were ok with Bethseda buyout.

26 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:23 ID: hc83cbu

It feels like a waste of money for Sony. Don't understand the point

27 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:25 ID: hc83odu

Most people like when sony funds and works with the third parties on exclusives, but these lame timed exclusive deals are cheap.

28 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:13 ID: hc8ap2z

Timed exclusivity? Nice moves Sony. Can’t wait to replay this legend again
